    I've stayed here several times. It's very nice and quiet. You can also get a room with a balcony overlooking Franklin St. Nice bar and lounge, and offers a great breakfast. Good location for sightseeing in CH also.

    Franklin Inn is a wonderful place to stay when visiting UNC. Clean, comfortable. Nice lounge. Convenient location. Really perfect. Parking is easy in the back. Really so close to the campus and many restaraunts in town

    Great location, great value and great hotel! Excellent food, beautiful bar and comfortable bed, with your choice of pillow type! Turn down service and a great balcony! Attentive staff all around. Will definitely be back!

    Came in for a Tar Heel game, first time at the Franklin. Loved it, I'll never stay anywhere else. Right across the street from my favorite cocktail bar, The Crunkleton, and a short walk to all of the classic Chapel Hill restaurants and bars.

    Hi, I am travelling with my son to North Carolina in august I am staying for 5 days and don't really want to drive as in Ireland we drive on the other side of the road.
